Heart of Practice Reiki Precepts Retreat

Troncones, Mexico February 25 - March 4, 2023

The Heart of Practice Reiki Precepts Retreat is open to home or professional Reiki practitioners from all lineages. Come refresh yourself while deepening your practice and your understanding of the Reiki Precepts in six heavenly days and seven stunning sunsets on the Pacific coast of Mexico.

Space is limited so reserve your restorative week now!

Why a Retreat?

Do you want to get more from your Reiki practice, or from life?

Does the state of our world make you anxious? Do you have a health concern, or are you weighed down by an important decision?

The Reiki Precepts are a profound aspect of Reiki practice, one that is too often overlooked. Come dive into the Precepts so they become an on-going support to you.

In our 6-day, 7-night retreat, you’ll immerse yourself in Reiki practice (both hands-on and Precept practice), rest, self-inquiry and supportive community. This restorative experience will help you find the steady contentment that lies within each of us.

You’ll gently transform unhealthy attitudes and open your heart to yourself, and to others.

Spiritual nourishment + great food

You’ll leave your retreat feeling seen, heard, respected and loved — by yourself, and those around you — and feeling empowered to step into your future. And nourished by walks on the gorgeous ocean beach and two delicious meals each day, dinner and breakfast, prepared to fit your dietary needs.

Lunch is available at the restaurant or in the town of Troncones, as you prefer.

We’ll meet each morning and late afternoon for practice and conversation to explore your spiritual experience, find clarity and discover your own meaning. Afternoons are on your own.

Although practicing the Reiki Precepts will be our theme, I tweak each retreat to serve all who participate. Everyone — home practitioner or Reiki professional — becomes a co-creator of our retreat, ensuring your priorities are addressed.

If you’re a Reiki professional, you’ll find the increased depth and clarity gained during the retreat will help you share your Reiki experience with potential clients and students more effectively.

Research shows a wellness week brings immediate benefits that last at least six weeks. Our retreat is even more powerful. Not only will you find profound rest, you’ll have hours of transformative practice and discussion each day, including table treatment while you watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. And you’ll leave with new skills.

Please join me for a profoundly restorative week full of practices to keep creating happiness and health for life!

About the Pandemic...

I’m planning this retreat at an unprecedented time in which there are a lot of unknowns. I’m making every effort to accommodate your needs, but the reality is we cannot predict what next February will be like, and recommended precautions can change as this novel virus and its is better understood, and as new variants appear.

Please do not register if you’re at all anxious about the situation. I don’t want to persuade anyone; rather, this section is to help you understand the location and what precautions we’ll take so you can make a good choice for yourself.

First of all, know that Troncones is a very rural area on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Our host told me there have been no known cases of Covid there.

Our meeting and practice space is covered to protect us from the strong sun but is otherwise in the open air on the beach with sea breezes. It is large enough for us to sit 6 feet apart.

The restaurant is similarly covered with 3 sides open to provide good air circulation. You can sit at tables spaced from others as is comfortable for you, or you can take your meals a few steps away on the beach and eat on your own.

Staff wear masks at all times and hand sanitizer is available in all public spaces.

Most rooms have palapa roofs that allow for good air circulation from the outside. Concrete structure rooms have air conditioners. Ideally you would room with someone you know. However, I can assign you a roommate (if someone is available).


We’ll follow the best medical precautions available when we meet. At this time, that advice is to wash hands frequently and wear masks when unable to stay 6 feet apart, and that outside is safer than inside. We can easily follow those guidelines.

The choice to self practice or join in table practice in our open air platform at sunset will be left to each individual. Additionally, I can try to group those who prefer to wear masks for table practice. Another possible accommodation for those who want to, would be to avoid placing hands on the face and throat, doubling the time with hands placed on the crown and at the back of the head. Please know I’ll do my best to accommodate people’s preferences, and you can always opt-out of shared practice and self practice instead, as you prefer.

Before making your non-refundable deposit, please check with your credit card to clarify what protection they offer in case you have to cancel. You might also check into travel insurance. Here is an article from Forbes, another from Nerd Wallet, and a third from the well known travel blogger The Points Guy. That’s a start on your research and please let me know if you find any others.

When I book my flights, I’ll look for ones that connect in the US (often in Texas but you need to do your research) and then fly directly to Ixtapa. 

Please use the contact form on the upper right to let me know if you have any other questions or suggestions.

This section will be updated if any information changes so keep checking back.

Our Reiki Retreat Site

We’ll be right on the beach at the beautiful Present Moment Retreat site in the small town of Troncones, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Temperatures hover around 80°F during the day. The sun is always shining.

A short Reiki free-write session follows self-practice each morning, so you’ll leave with a new skill to help you continue deepening, exploring and discovering on your own.

Our retreat balances inner and outer, so you’ll reenter your life refreshed, in wonder, and equipped to stay that way.

You’ll return home with the deep well of support you’ve discovered within yourself and in the community we create, a well that can become a lifelong resource and the skills to keep developing.

Truly, what could be better?

I am thrilled to share this with you! And who am I?

Retreat Host Pamela Miles

I’m Pamela Miles, an international Reiki master and spiritual teacher based in New York City, author of REIKI: A Comprehensive Guide and the foremost Medical Reiki pioneer.

I started practicing meditation and yoga and using traditional healing approaches as an adolescent.

I learned to practice Reiki in 1986, and have have been practicing daily self-Reiki ever since. When I learned Reiki, I was a professional healer and meditation teacher, sharing with clients the practices and knowledge that made such a difference in my life, so I began offering Reiki treatment to my clients.

While maintaining my private practice, I began collaborating in conventional medicine in the 1990s, creating Reiki programs in prominent New York City hospitals, including New York Presbyterian-Columbia Hospital and Beth Israel Medical Center; teaching at academic medical centers, including Harvard and Yale medical schools and the NIH; collaborating on research; publishing peer-reviewed medical papers; and mentoring Reiki home and professional practitioners.


As a media spokesperson—NBC, CBS, CNN, FOX, The Dr. Oz Show, The Atlantic, U.S. News & World Report, New York Magazine, Refinery29, The Daily Beast, Allure—I remain committed to bringing Reiki practice to a broad mainstream public, and to helping Reiki practitioners develop depth and clarity in their practice and skillful communication, so that more people can benefit.

Our retreat includes breakfast and dinner (lunch is on your own on site or in town, as you choose). The breakfast buffet includes coffee, tea, fruits, yoghurts, and two hot items such as eggs, mixed veggies, or pancakes (selections change daily). At breakfast, you’ll receive a consolidated menu with dinner selections.

My fave lunch cafe is steps away and there’s a very authentic Mexican cantina just down the road.

Travel Info to Ease Your Journey

Travel logistics

Ixtapa, the local airport, is a half hour drive from Troncones.

Your retreat fee includes transportation to and from the airport, so be sure to let us know your flight plans.

There are many possibilities if you want to extend your time in Mexico. I always enjoy a stopover in Mexico City, or consider a few days in San Miguel de Allende or Oaxaca City (I can suggest a B&B and a great mezcal tour!). Both offer a lot of culture and interesting day trips.


What do I need to pack?

Days are warm to hot, nights are cooler. Always good to pack a light jacket or sweater, and some long pants. And of course, bring a bathing suit or two. Towels are provided.

Our sessions are in an open-air pavilion with curtains drawn for privacy. You might want a shawl for the morning.

Bring a notebook or journal and your favorite pen.

Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende are cooler.


Reserve your place now!

Are you as excited as I am? YESSS!!!

We’ll be a small group, so act now to secure your space. Remember the fee includes breakfast, lodging and all retreat sessions.

This is an intimate, supportive, loving retreat for a small group. There are limited accommodations and space is strictly first come, first served.

DO NOT make travel arrangements until we’ve confirmed there is space for you.
